    i386: Mark NUMA support experimental
    I did some testing and found quite a lot of problems (doesn't
    boot at all on non NUMA and misassigns cores on Opteron systems).
    Mark it as experimental and warn against its use for now.
    It's still default y for SUMMIT/NUMAQ because it'll presumably
    work on these systems.
